Use WebEx with Linux

From Linuxintro

WebEx allows you to control a computer's desktop over the network, even using proxies through firewalls. There is a possibility to use a free trial:

Set it up

The first start of WebEx fails but I find a folder .webex in my home folder and it shows which dependencies are not met:

tweedleburg:~/.webex/1224 # ldd *.so | grep "not found" => not found => not found => not found => not found

Ok, so I install all missing packages, in this example for SUSE:

yast -i libgtk-2_0-0-32bit libpangox-1_0-0-32bit libXmu-devel-32bit libpng12-0-32bit libXv-devel-32bit

With the exception of jawt that I cannot find:

tweedleburg:~/.webex/1224 # ldd *.so | grep "not found" => not found => not found

and it works :)
